Posted by – May 10, 2010

Yesterday I went to the opening of  Leena and Taisto’s  small, cozy and unique Café “Tuhannen Tuskan Kahvila”  placed where the stables of their beautiful wooden house, Liisantalo,  were formerly. The building,  one of the” Old Houses” (“Vanhat Talot “) of  Loviisa, is a traditional Finnish wooden house restored by them with lots of work and love…

And, I met there some common friends. We all enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere, Leena’s pastries and Taisto’s art works…

“Maja” gives instructions and  good  ideas on how to create new and funny stuffs for children using and recycling what we have home. It also gives some seeds of ideas for decorating the “Imagination room”, the children’s own room.

“Maja” has been selected to the Finest Finnish Books 2008 collection by the Finnish Book Arts Committee.

A desing with personality

Posted by – April 27, 2010

Today I post a photo of a design “with  an strong personality ” of  Norway Says.  In 2009, after almost 10 years of fruitful collaboration, the running partners of the the company,  Espen Voll, Torbjørn Anderssen and Andreas Engesvik, decided to  close it down to open two new companies:  Anderssen & Voll and Adnreas Engesvik , both with great and interesting designs and projects.

Photo “Im Boo Carafe”

The Photo Press is from the  company Muuto A  Danish company striving to expand the Scandinavian design tradition with  new and original perspectives. As a curiosity, the name of the company is  inspired by the Finnish word  “muutos” “that means  change.
